Stay moving this December – and earn your own festive ultra

It’s simple. You don’t need to travel to a race; just join our virtual community and run or walk where you live and where you love. It’s not all about distance: we’ll have nearly 20 prizes up for grabs in various categories, as well as earning your own special SVUC buff when you cover more than 50km over the challenge period – plus a medal if you complete 50km in a single day.

Let’s get festive ❆

It’s time to dust off your antlers and Santa suits! While you might not be running surrounded by other competitors, last year’s race had bags of seasonal atmosphere. We’ll have prizes for best photos, fancy dress, and more. Just hop over to Facebook to join in the fun…
